KY-02: Moyer for Congress!

Posted by DavidNYC

Kentucky's second district is awfully red - it's an OH-02-like district (indeed, the two regions are separated by only around 100 miles). Of course, it's represented by a Republican (some nobody named Ron Lewis). But given Paul Hackett's success in OH-02, I think we seriously need to nominate this guy to run in KY-02:

Based on the stitching on Mr. Moyer's cap, it looks like he hails from Vine Grove, KY (that's where VFW Post 10281 is based), which is in Hardin County, which is in, of course, KY-02. Another undoubtedly straight-talking war veteran. Perfect!

That bullshit protector could come in handy in a lot of other races.

Where do you suppose he got it?

Vine Grove sits within spitting distance of Fort Knox, the major employer in area. I doubt that he will have much political appeal to folks in the area.
